Caleb Plant: Dirrell likes to act like a bully but sells only wolf tickets

Caleb Plant is never at a loss to find an enemy in the super middleweight division. It’s never personal, though he questions whether it’s the case for Anthony Dirrell.

The buildup of the bout of former super middleweight titleholders has been nothing short of contentious. It’s par for the course for both fighters, though Plant detects a pattern from his upcoming opponent.

“I definitely feel there’s a lot of jealousy there,” Plant told and other reporters during a Zoom conference call to discuss their upcoming WBC title eliminator. “He can get mad, he can hate me and feel however he wants. He’s not a bully. He likes to act like a bully but sells a lot of wolf tickets.

“I don’t care give a fuck about where he’s from or what he says. He and his team have been barking, they’ve been doing that for the last seven years and still not where they want to be. That don’t mean nothing to me.”

Plant-Dirrell takes place on October 15 as part of a Fox Sports Pay-Per-View event from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The bout serves as the chief support to the Deontay Wilder-Robert Helenius WBC heavyweight semifinal title eliminator.
“I really don’t feel no type of way about him. He can say what he wants to say,” insists Plant. “He sells a lot of wolf tickets and barks a whole lot. But his bite ain’t near what his bark is. His whole team, the same dudes have been barking alongside him for the last seven years but he’s never had one successful title defense.

“In his last fight, he knocked out Marcos Hernandez… a blown-up middleweight who was getting stopped at 154 pounds. If you’re getting stopped at 154 pounds… you know. We’re not even in the same galaxy with (Hernandez). He had a draw with Kyrone (Davis)—who’s a good fighter but fights at middleweight—in the fight before that. The list goes on and on. He barks a lot and yells a lot. But when was the last time he beat a super middleweight?”.
